Are you finished with your holiday shopping?
Except for the fact that my 11-year-old refused to tell me what he wanted for Christmas, because Santa “KNOWS.”
Then, of course, as soon as the big, brown box from Amazon was tucked safely into my secret spot, he says, “I think I’ll make my list now.”
You told me you didn’t WANT anything SPECIFIC.
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
Oh my jolly-man-in-red.
Luckily, I managed to “guess” pretty accurately. I’d say about 75 percent of the items on his list are already wrapped and ready to go. The remaining 25 percent? Well, about 20 percent of that is “Not no way, no how.” Sorry, but “gaming laptop” isn’t happening this year. “Minecraft gift card,” on the other hand, is.

Whisk together the honey, mustard, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and rice wine vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Marinade the chicken tenders in half of the honey mustard for 30 minutes.
Remove chicken from marinade and wrap each piece with bacon. Place on a jelly roll sheet. Brush with the honey mustard marinade, crack pepper over each piece and bake for 10-12 minutes on 375.
